Jails and prisons hold people charged with or convicted of crimes. Jails usually house people who have been charged with crimes and are awaiting sentencing. Prisons house those who have been convicted of serious offenses. Both types of facilities are operated and maintained by local, state, or federal authorities. There are also private prisons, operated as for-profit businesses.
Jails may house inmates who have been sentenced to less than one year of incarceration, while prisons house inmates with sentences ranging from one year to life. Security factors determine each inmate's placement.
You can find out which jail or prison holds a particular inmate by using an online inmate locator or inmate search site showing inmates in county jails and state prisons. You'll need the name, date of birth and identification number to find a particular inmate in jail or prison.
